Project Details

Our school has a group of children who are ambassadors for the Mayor's Fitness Council of San Antonio. When our ambassadors had an opportunity to brainstorm ideas on how to get kids to increase their level of activity, they realized there were not many options except to play on the playground. Our school was fortunate enough to receive a grant for a beautiful garden. Although the garden has benefitted our school, we lost a large space where the children could run and play. The ambassadors continued to brainstorm on how to solve this problem and we came up with Fuel Up 60. Our district has purchased the stencil set for Fuel Up 60 and painted it only at six campuses throughout the entire district. Unfortunately, our campus was not one of the six selected schools. The Fuel Up 60 has games and activities which will be painted on our blacktop and courtyard area. We need funds to purchase paint, brushes, and other materials to make this project happen. The student ambassadors along with a group of adults are willing to work on a Saturday in order to complete this project. Once the stencils are in place, this will give the children various activities and games to play at recess with little or no equipment. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support to keep our students healthy and moving!
